Oriflame Tender Care Rose Protecting Balm Review

Hi everyone! 

Who doesn't love Oriflame products? Well I do love them a lot!
Oriflame is one of those brands you that you purchase from and you wont be disappointed! 
The product quality is fantastic and the price in most products is really accessible for everyone.
The product that I'm reviewing today is that product that almost anyone needs to have in their make up bag! Yes, I'm talking about a protecting balm!!

This balm is very useful and can be used not only on your lips but also on your feet, hands and elbows. It can be uses to treat dry or irritated skin. It helps smooth the skin when it's to dry and it has healing, regenerative, smoothing and nutritious proprieties. 

I really liked this product since it's very smooth and has a very light texture, it gets absorbed very quickly and it gives an instant soft and smooth skin!
It's also non-greasy so it doesn't leave you with that oily feeling. 
Its packaging is really cute and travel friendly since it doesn't need a lot of space on your make up bag. It can be reached at any time and you can carry it anywhere you go! It is really practical!

I use this product when I have really dry lips and sometimes on my elbows and I have to say that my elbows are really smooth! 

What are you opinions about this product? Do you like it? Leave your opinions in the comments!

Rimmel London Natural Bronzer Review

Natural Bronzer

I'm going to say something that may shock some of you who wear make up on a daily basis.
 I've never user a bronzer! I know its crazy!!
I never used one every time I had my make up done because I had the idea that a bronzer would darken my skin and it would make it look fake, so I was a little sceptical about bronzers.
I have a very light skin tone so I thought that using a bronzer would look bad on me.
But I changed my mind!
A few weeks ago my best friend told me that one of our local supermarkets was having a sale and that this bronzer was in promotion. 
I though about the idea of owning a bronzer and I decided that I couldn't hate bronzers forever if I didn't tried it out.
 So, I decided to purchase it and it cost around six euros.
In overall I liked the product mainly because it was discrete when I applied it on my skin and it has the most amazing smell ever!
 Every time I take a sniff it reminds me of summer!
The design that it has is really pretty and the packaging is really cute and easy to save on my make up bag.
The two problems I found about this product when I was searching information about it is that isn't good for oily skins, which is my skin type, and that it tests on animals!!
I'm against animal testing and that's the reason that I'm not going to be purchasing this brand ever again.

Kiko Costetics Review

Hey Guys! How's everyone doing?

Today's post is a review of some products I bought from Kiko a few weeks ago.
This is a delayed post since it should have been up two weeks ago, but other topics came up. Nevertheless, the time has come!

I was in need of some new make up products, yet I wasn't quite sure on where to look. The city where I live most of the time doesn't have the variety I wish it had.  The moment I heard that Kiko was selling 5 products for 10€ I knew exactly what my next stop would be! I had 2 weeks to evaluate the quality of the products, so today I'll give you an honest review.

1. Smart Lipstick Rouge à Leuvres in the Shade 934 Wine

Lipsticks are the kind of products that almost everyone has in a lot of different shades and brands. Despite not being one of those people, I aim at having an imense collection. I probably only have 5 different lipsticks and not a single lip gloss - had an allergic reaction the last time I wore one so I never did it again. This said, I'll definitely try and buy a lot more lipsticks!
What I found great with this lipstick is the pigmentation and how powerful the colour is! It stays on my lips for a very long time and it's lovely.
I usually wear a nude lipstick since I don't like seeing myself with bright colours such as red or pink, but when I wore this one for the first time I immediately fell in love. 
I'll definitely buy more shades when I have the time to go shopping. If you have any favourite Kiko lipstick, please tell me in the comments because I really want to try more of their lipsticks!


This concealer wasn't included in the promotion but I was needing one so bad that I took the opportunity and started looking for one.
I had never used a cream concealer. Moreover, I'm not a fan of this type of concealers as the liquid ones can be considerably easier to use. But of course, it depends on what you intend to do. For a simple coverage (pimples or blemishes), cream concealer can be truly helpful. If your goal is a stronger coverage, liquid concealer is your best friend. It will blend better, whether you do it with a proper brush or with your fingers. It is also a lot more effective for dark circles.

3. Deep Black Feutre Eyeliner

Funny story: bought this by accident. While browsing through the counter sections with the items in promotion (I only needed one more product), I grabbed this one thinking it was a black mascara since it was in the mascara section. Thank God for that mistake!
I love this eyeliner so much that now I can't leave without it! I wear it every time I have to leave the house, whether it's for school or to go out at night.
It makes it easier for you to draw the perfect cat eye and it lasts a long time. 
The colour is well pigmented, it doesn't smudge as often as some liquid eyeliners and it dries very fast.

4. Long Lasting Sticks Shades 21 and 31

These eyeshadows are the best thing ever! I don't usually wear pigmented eyeshadows on a daily basis but I fell in love with these two! They are very subtle and both have an amazing colour. 
Number 35 is a pinky shade whereas 21 is more of a coral shade, hence my favourite!
The way I like to use them is with eyeliner and the result is just dazzling! The texture is really good and it stays on my eyelids thoughout the whole day. 
It doesn't require blending unless you want to. I like to apply them, use the eyeliner and voilá! I'm ready to go!
These products were definitely worth the money I spent. 

5. Infinity Eye Shadow Nr. 222

  This product is more subtle but pretty nonetheless.
I use it occasionally when I want a more natural look.
There were only two downsides: it's very easy to lose since the packaging is really small and after application it sometimes looks like it's not there.
I know that it's for a neutral look but a little more pigmentation would be good in my opinion. 
I usually wear it with eyeliner on top.
I don't know if I would buy it again in this shade but I would like to try different shades in this range. 

So what are your thoughts? 
Did any of you also used this promotion to buy new make up products?  Do you have any favourite Kiko products? Which ones? Let me know in the comments!

March Favourites!

Hi guys!

It might be just me, but I feel like March flew by! It seems like only yesterday was March 1st. Well, this means it's time to talk about what I loved throughout the month. Shall we begin?

1. The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Lotion

My best friend gave me this product for Christmas but I only started using it this month because I wanted to finish the one I was using at the time.
One of the things I loved about this lotion is the smell. It's really soft and sweet and stays on your skin for a very long time. It doesn't smell too much of cocoa which I find very pleasant, since it doesn't become to heavy.

2. Oriflame Discover Miami Spirit Body Scrub

Everyone loves a good body scrub, right? Or is it just me? I've always liked to try out new body scrubs since I prefer to exfoliate my skin during the shower rather than only applying a normal shower gel. 
What I loved about this Oriflame Discover Body Scrub is the scent and the fact that it doesn't irritate my skin. Some scrubs can be really rough on the skin and leave it slightly reddish.
The smell is really smooth and and leaves a sweet scent on the skin. 

3. Make Up Factory All-in-One Mascara

I'm going to be honest.
 I'm not a huge fan of Make Up Factory mainly because their prices are a bit high, but I can't complain about the excellence of their products. 
I bought this mascara on a promotion -it was 13.32€ - and I love it, I really do! I don't wear mascara that much but I used this one quite a lot. It's in the shade black and it's an All in One Mascara since it leaves your eyelashes with a lot of volume and lasts a very long time. 

4. Barbara Hofmann Professional Liquid Foundation Brush

I bought this foundation brush because it was in a promotion - 5,96€ - and I was needing a professional make up brush for liquid foundation. 
This brush is amazing, it's really high quality and it blends really well around my skin.

5. Stratti's Mango Shampoo and Chocolate Conditioner

I've had a long battle with frizzy hair. It always got worse 2 or 3 days after being washed. Seeking to find a long lasting solution, in the beginning of the month I had a treatment done to my hair so as to make it stronger, more sleek and easier to brush.
My hairdresser told me I had to use proper shampoo and conditioner, meaning it had to be salt and paraben free. 

I went to a store specialized in haircare and after explaining to the employee my hair history, she gave me advice on which products were best suited for my hair.
The ones I brought have a wonderful fragrance and leave my hair super smooth. 
They have quite the sweet scent, but not too sweet.

6. Scorpion Tv Series

My mum introduced me to this series and at first I wasn't convinced, but after starting to pay attention, I was hooked. It's amazing!
Basically it's a show where 4 geniuses have to fight the most complicated threats.
I highly recommend everyone to watch this show!!

So.. Those are my March Favourites!
